Where’s Penny? Fans were asking as the watched Season 4 Episode 5 of the Big Bang Theory. ‘Desperation Emanation’ featured Sheldon getting cold feet about his relationship with his “friend who is a girl, but not his girlfriend”, Amy Farrah Fowler.
Leonard on the other hand was feeling the pressure of being the only male on The Big Bang Theory not being in a relationship. Raj is seeing a girl who is deaf; making his fear of talking to a women null and void, and even Stuart from the comic book store is seeing someone.
So where was Penny? Well come to find out Kaley Cuoco who plays Penny on The Big Bang Theory broke her leg several weeks back and was laid up in the hospital. Cuoco was thrown from a horse while taking riding lessons, told viewers on ‘Ellen’ the fall didn’t break anything, but the horse stepping on her leg did.
The broken leg was serious enough to keep Cuoco in the hospital for two weeks and cause her to have several operations on the leg. It also caused Penny to be AWOL for two episodes of the show.
The Big Bang producers made the decision not to write the broken leg into the script instead Penny will be tending bar instead of working as a waitress at the Cheesecake Factory for the next several weeks.
